much of the pleasure thaWeprings from the
gratification of low desires and animal in
stincts: but, as a race, he can never hope
to attain a much highor position than he
at present enjoys, and the chances are that
he will degenerate and become more de
graded, and finally waste away and disap
pear. Tho mawkish philanthropy "tliat
makes him just now the object' of interest,
arises mainly from & eelfhh political aim.
Tliis purpose gives not a moment's thought
to tho welfareor advancement of the tiegro.
Its only aim is to use him as a tool to gain
or maintain power. This will bo transitory
and evanescent. When the occasion shaH
hayo passed, the- negro will be-lett as ho is
now, to work and strive alone against his
adverse and inexorable fate. With these
facta certainly existing, and these prospects
awaiting Jiira In the future, stirelv it cannot
ho for tho best interest of the colored ;uan
to remain here and encounter them for
ever; at leafct, when ho Is offered a home
and a country wher none of these deeradiiwr
conditions await him; a home where
every advantage that the white man en
joys will he freely bestowed upon-hira";
where every -civil and political right that
you and I noseciw, will be his in as full and
perfect a manner as thmost fayprd of our
race; a home where all the art and appli
ances that render life .happy, mav be ob
tained with equal, if not greater 'facility
than they can be, procured in this coontrv;
where abundant harvests crown the labor
(jf $5 husbandman, and where aU the
riches pf the tropica are emptied, alavoat
upsanght, into the lap of the laborer, (jfj
this country and those advantages, I propose
to speak hereafter; at present I desire to
show you that it is, also, to the interest of
the white race that the negro should be
separated from amongst us. In approaching
this question, 1 am aware that I encounter
prejudice and fanaticism on the one IhumI,
and avarice and selfishness on ike other.
